The Takeovers - Bad Football: Pre-Orders, Tracklist, MP3's And Album Cover Revealed (Updated!)

(Update! The fourth preview MP3 from Bad Football for the track I Can See My Dog is now available at The Takeovers new myspace page! Go now, download, listen, add to your profile, dance like no one is watching, go nuts- its a good one!)

Huzzah! The follow-up to my favorite 2006 Robert Pollard release, The Takeovers "Turn To Red", has finally been unmasked. "Bad Football" is on its way and so far it looks and sounds great!

Earlier today, Off Records cracked open a new webpage dedicated to Bad Football. And long awaited details about the new Takeovers collaboration between Robert Pollard and ex-GBV bassist Chris Slusarenko have been revealed. The mindblowingly awesome cover is another collage previously revealed in EAT 2, brought to fruition on this LP. And a fuller list of session players like Stephen Malkmus (Pavement), Tad Doyle (Tad), John Moen (The Decembrists) and Dan Peters (Mudhoney) has been brought to light. Also included on the website is a full tracklist as follows...

1. You’re At It
2. Little Green Onion Man
3. Father’s Favorite Temperature
4. Molly & Zack
5. Pretty Not Bad
6. Smokestack Bellowing Stars
7. I Can See My Dog
8. The Jester of Helpmeat
9. Kicks At The Gym
10. Music For Us
11. The Year Nobody Died
12. My Will

But the icing on the proverbial cake are three preview MP3's- Father’s Favorite Temperature, Molly & Zack and My Will! My Will is my early favorite, but they all sound groovy.

So jump on The Takeovers bandwagon and pre-order your copy (on CD and collectible vinyl) of Bad Football before the official June 12th release date! And look for another Off Records/Happy Jack Rock Records release of The Takeovers' Little Green Onion Man 7" EP with three unreleased tracks, coming in August...
